Position paper of the IFIP- DCCC (Domain Committee on Cloud Computing)
This paper presents the work undertaken by IFIP's DCCC point of view on Cloud Computing. The work of the DCCC is described at the very end of the paper. Cloud Computing is one of the main paradigm shifts in the history of computing and information processing. This position paper analyses the several impacts on companies (SMEs and large enterprises), society (public authorities, users, the scientific community), and the possible implications for policy makers. The implications of Cloud Computing are then analysed from the sustainability and the environmental point of view, the possible connections at global scale, and the need for a humancentred view. Finally the importance of Cloud Computing from the IFIP perspective is discussed.
